Chula Vista Mulls Half-Cent Sales Tax Hike Ballot Measure

City leaders in Chula Vista are considering putting a sales tax increase on the November ballot.

The Chula Vista City Council voted 4-1 Tuesday to look into the advantages and disadvantages of proposing a half-cent sales tax increase for 10 years.

Officials are also considering a ballot measure so voters can choose where those funds would be spent.

Staff will put together a proposal and present it to the council in June.

Chula Vista’s sales tax rate stands at 8 percent, the same as the City of San Diego and Imperial Beach but less than National City’s 9 percent sales tax rate.
